Should I follow their size chart and get a size 40? Thanks! I believe most of the posters here have said to stay with one's own size or go down a size with the Sterlingwear. I haven't heard any say go up. I only have one civilian Sterlingwear, and it is...

I think part of why my sizing seems to be somewhat throwing you and others is that I think my shoulders are relatively wide and/or built for someone with my size chest. I remember trying...
